LEGO House

My son loves LEGO. I have several pictures of him playing with it so when I ran across some LEGO paper awhile back I bought several sheets with a layout or two in mind. That was not to be. A cheap balsa wood house and the afore mentioned paper along with some adhesive has made my son a happy boy. It took us almost an hour to cover the house but it was an hour well spent. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

November Holiday Party

It is official...the Holiday's are here (at least for me)! Tonight rather than running her usual stamping class my friend Marge held a great get together at her home. She organized a stamped image swap and asked each of us to make a sample of the card we would use the image with, had sweet and savory snacks galore, and had a cute little bag for each of us to make. As if that was not enough, Marge also had a couple of games, complete with prizes. I had a great time!

Here are:

1. the images I got in the swap

2. my sample cards

3. the treat bag I made tonight

Trick or Treat 2008

We had a great time with another family going door-to-door, looking for treats. My poor son ended up giving about 1/2 of his candy to his friend because he can't eat it with his palate expander in. Nothing sticky for six months. Popcorn is off the list, too. We took him to Hershey Park in the Dark on Saturday so I think maybe this Halloween wasn't a complete bust for him. At seven, he is quite the daredevil. I had to call it quits after the 4th roller coaster. My husband won't go on any of them so I ended up riding with Russ. The one called the Cork Screw about did me (and the contents of my stomach) in.

The layout was created using Adobe Elements and a digiscrap set by Marie Cole.
